I picked-up my MS60 on Saturday and I have been trying to come-up with an analogy to explain how the acceleration feels. I have seen some reviews where journalists try and describe it, but I haven't seen one yet that is accurate. I came-up with one, but it's still not good enough. I'm hoping some of you talented members can come-up with a better one. The best I could come up with is that it feels as though the car is connected to a fully stretched bungee-jumper cord and pushing the accelerator releases the brakes. The more you push on the accelerator, the less the brakes are applied. The when you let-off, the brakes begin to apply (regen). Part of why I think the bungee analogy is accurate is because it's so quiet and smooth that it feels as if the power is coming from an external source.
